Sum Sum Summer time fun.

So here we are at the end of June. How has the time gone by so quickly? I've been busy being creative. LOVE IT! I have a constant struggle with my drive. It isn't that I'm not driven to do things, the problem is what do I really have passion for? Well the reality is that I have experienced many different careers. Not that I'm all over the road, but b/c I've lived all over the U.S. I have spent time surrounded by a variety of people and jobs. That said my current and never ending struggle is between healthcare & creativity. I'm someone who LOVES helping people. I'm really a people person. I talk, relate, understand etc... with people of varying walks of life. I can find a common ground in many discussions. But in being a Marketing Manager at my last position I realized what I've known all my life-- my passion is in Photography, Design, Music and all things creative. So how do I utilize my creativity while helping/relating to people. I can't explain the feeling I get when I walk into a hospital. It's a powerful drive. I don't want to leave, I want to help. Like I said - I can't explain it. But then I get behind my camera and see things differently, composing, creating.... I'm taking this time to sit down, and get back to me. Focus on the most important things.  While I'm staying home w/ Makena this summer- she is actually gone quite a bit giving me an opportunity to focus on me & finding myself again. 

This summer my parents are taking Makena Mondays & Tuesdays. I pick her back up on Wednesdays then her dad takes her Wed nights. Every other weekend she is still w/ her dad & alternating Saturdays she spends the night playing w/ my friend Bridget's daughter Morrigan. 

Makena will also be leaving w/ her dad for two weeks beginning July 25-Aug 7! When she gets back it looks like she might be going camping w/ my parents possibly. That said- we have a busy summer. I hope to pick up a new camera (point/shoot) this afternoon since my camera isn't holding a charge anymore :(

I'm very blessed to have the support of my friends and family.

Really? Noooo... really?

OMG- Has it REALLY been over a month since I've updated this thing? CRAZY! Sooo.... I Facebook, occasionally MySpace & Twitter regularly.... but can't seem to keep up on the blog. What is an unemployed girl to do? I mean really?

Soooo, here we are- June 12th already. Makena will be 8yrs old in 7 more days and believe me... she's counting! School ends on the 19th as well and she will be very very excited for summer. LOTS of fun stuff planned this summer. Hoping to finalize some of it this weekend.

I can't believe that she will be going into 2nd grade! how did that happen so quickly?!?!

This week has been exceptionally fun! I have spent quite a bit of time w/ my friend Michelle (who is was laid off from her job 2 months ago). We have been going to the gym, laying by the pool, jet skiing & shopping this week alone! lol. It's nice to have a partner in crime for sure.
